Annapurna Pictures has released the trailer and character posters for Boots Riley‘s first written-directed feature “Sorry To Bother You,” which will hit theaters on June 29.
The film had its World Premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
The film stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, and Danny Glover.
In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, 30-something black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe with a disturbing likeness to our own. The upswing in Cassius’s career raises serious red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a sign-twirling gallery artist who is secretly a part of a Banksy-style collective called Left Eye. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company’s cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious, and relentlessly optimistic CEO, Steve Lift (Armie Hammer).
Riley studied film at San Francisco State University before ending his studies in favor of a major-label recording deal for his band, The Coup.
